How to do Barcelona in 4 days.


Barcelona is such a great city. With the perfect amount of beach and city, I can most definitely live here. Starting with the food. It’s surprisingly cheap to eat. And aside from the food being affordable, the entertainment is intriguing. Like the traditional flamenco show. You’ve seen nothing in Barcelona if you don’t attend a flamenco show.

Our 1st Trip To Asia – Hong Kong & Thailand: The City of Hong Kong Trip Review

By Guillermo Rodriguez (Award Travel Points)






This is a review of our 2 short but awesome and active days in Hong Kong.       Our day started early in the morning. The plane arrived to Hong Kong at 6:00am and it was too early to check into our hotel (JW Marriott Hong Kong), so we decided to leave our luggage in the hotel and started touring and walking around the city. We didn’t want to waste any time because our stay in Hong Kong was going to be very short, just 2 days and there’s just so much to see and do in Hong Kong.

The Best Ways to Go to Hawaii for Free Using Frequent Flyer Miles!

For many people just starting out at this frequent flyer and miles thing, earning enough miles for an award ticket can be daunting. As can wading through the myriad options for how to get from one place to another, not to mention which airline flies the most comfortable seats between two cities.

I thought I’d back up a bit and help those newbies out there looking for some basic advice. And I think everyone new to frequent flyer miles has the same first question: How do I get enough miles to get a free trip to ____? After all, why else get frequent flyer miles unless you want to use them to go somewhere, right?

So let’s start with trips to Hawaii, historically one of the most popular places to visit using miles. (How popular is it? According to this LA Times article, Pan Am re-started service to Hawaii from NYC and LA in 1987 just so it could give away seats to Hawaii to frequent flyers looking to cash in their Worldpass miles. And you wonder why they went out of business.) Read the rest of this entry
